Washington Life's report "The Philanthropic 50" lists the capital city's most generous givers, with heavy emphasis on the arts.
"Our annual compilation of Washington’s most generous benefactors is not exhaustive, but exemplifies the spirit of giving that continues in our fair city. Charitable donations remained abundant in the past year despite a still-recovering economy. Donors are consistently giving to local causes and giving big from David and Alice Rubenstein’s staggering $50 million gift to the Kennedy Center to GEICO Executive Rynthia Rost’s mentorship of young multicultural women in the District." -- Washington Life magazine
